Are there any tutorials or doumentations for plan9k OS?

Question

I've heard Plan9k has better multi-threading and virtual components, however I couldn't find any documentation that shows how to use such things, or to even mention plan9k. So, how can I get started with Plan9k?

OpenOS has absolutely proper pipes now, such as those  you invoke with `cat file | grep foobar`, and a kick butt threading library (read https://ocdoc.cil.li/api:thread )

As for virtual components? No, there is nothing built into OpenOS for virtual components, but gamax92 has written a nice vcomponent library you can add via oppm, `oppm install vcomponent`

Plan9k is retired, to be honest. It was ahead of its time, but is now outdated. OpenOS is faster, lower memory, has gobs of great libraries, super awesome command line parsing, and is ACTIVELY developed. I might be biased....
